Grant Opportunities

Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Research Core (MRC)2
Small Grants Program

Small Pilot/Feasability grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to investigators who are interested in running metabolomics samples in the Biomedical Research Core Facilities (BRCF) – Metabolomics Core.

Out of the $5,000, one-third ($1,667) will come from the (MRC)2, one-third ($1,667) will come from the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR), and the remainder from the awardee. Grants of less than $5,000 will also be divided into one-third from (MRC)2, one-third from MICHR, and one-third from the awardee.

The grants are intended for any investigator doing translationally oriented research who does not yet use metabolomics in their research.

There is no deadline. Awards will be determined on an ongoing basis until funds are exhausted. The MRC2 funds approximately 15 grants/year.
